Let The Games Begin!
Posted by Greg Carter
We hope that the start of your season goes as planned, whether that is tryouts which will start soon in many parts of the country, or first practices which is the case here in our home state of Massachuesetts.
In our last article we talked about 3 Reasons for an Awesome Season including preparedness, desire and the band of brothers and sisters! Chasing Your Hockey Dreams and not being afraid to take chances (on the ice creatively) as well as pushing yourself outside your comfort zone with training and new opportunities often can lead to great things. Never be afraid to chase your dreams!
With the NHL preseason starting in a few days, it’s always a good idea for youth hockey players to watch what the best players in the world are doing on the ice. We like to say that The Great Ones Make It Look Easy and all of the most skilled hockey players have a hero or heroes that they look up to and try to emulate.
You might recall that a year ago we were in the midst of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Yes, hockey playoffs in September due to the pandemic! Our player tips talked about great teams winning one goal games, the fact that great players make great plays when it counts the most and that shuffling lines is not the end of the world. Keep this in mind as you start the 2021-22 youth hockey season!
We wish you the best of luck with the start of your hockey season and hope that the skills you worked on at summer hockey school get you off to a great start. There will be ups and downs, highs and lows and remember to Focus On What You Can Control versus worrying about what you can’t.
Thanks for reading and we look forward to seeing you at the rink soon!
